Not to be rude, but I don't find Protein Shakes to be 'cleansing', and I speak from 4 days of consummation. LOL

I find it boring and difficult, not impossible - plain old sucks!!!

Yes they do suck lol especially the Premier Protein shakes! Atkins shakes are pretty decent! Thats what help me get through my pre-op diet! I have three more weeks to go before i can advance to mushy foods [emoji19]i cant wait!

You don't find them cleansing ... as in the sense of an enema?

You are not the first person who's added that the Protein Shakes are unsatisfactory taste-wise, difficult to take or part of a mundane/boring process BUT I've asked several others over the last five weeks: "What is wrong with something tasteless, difficult or unpalatable when the ultimate goal is so pure?"

Your long time wait to have a chance of conquering years of obesity must be worth a little difficulty or a moderately small obstacle (in the scheme of life) to pay for your change.

It sounds a bit 'first world problem' stuff when so many people seem ill-prepared to make a few days (or a few weeks) sacrifice for the body change they wanted.

I grew up in the 1950s and early 1960s when no-one tried to make medicines taste better. To hear the adjectives used on these Protein shakes and post-op foods is a little ungracious.

I've taken the view, "so what, they are not my first choice foods and flavours but they are doing me an ultimate good which I will have for many years to come, i.e. a normal-sized height-weight ratio."

It deserves a little thinking about thanking yourself for the WLS choice and going the last step not sounding like an ungrateful misery-guts type person.

Just my 10c worth!

Oh for f $!#@ sake, you are being too serious and philosophical, didn't you see the LOL and recognize some sarcasm. Believe me liquid diets suck, plain and simple. Keep the change!!!
